    This is a script for change IP, Subnet mask and gateway:


    Set wshshell = wscript.CreateObject("")

    LACName = "Local Area Connection" 'daca nume placa este Local Area

    'setare IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway

    wshshell.Run "netsh interface ip set address name=" & chr(34) & LACName &
    chr(34) & _

    " source=static addr= mask=
    gateway= " & _

    "gwmetric=1", 0, true


    I want to do script for change configuration Preferred DNS server and
    Alternate DNS server, any ideas?

    All your interface configuration information can be dumped using NETSH:

    c:\>netsh interface ip dump

    Save the output of this command in a text file. then from ur wscript file, run
    following command:

    netsh exec "textfile.txt"

    where textfile.txt is the file where u copied the netsh config dump. I also
    assume that u have made any configuration changes that u would like DNS
    primary and
    secondary settings in text file after saving the dump. do note also that
    dumping the netsh interface conf, add a secondary DNS in ip config using
    normal method.
